    Mel. :wtf:

    Did you put the bolt back through the shifter and torque rod? Did you make sure that the bushings didn't fall out? When I did mine, a couple months later the nut on the bolt though the torque rod/shift rod backed off and the bolt started coming out, had the same feeling you are describing.

    Same thing happened to me after i did my swap - it turned out that my shifterbushings were nonexistant - you should be able to see where the bushing should go under the car - just call a honda dealership and buy a replacement bushing - mine was $10

    I know none of the bolts are loose cause I checked it 100 times. I'll for sure look into the bushings though. one of my freinds told me the same thing but I couldn't figure out how the bushings would make a difference.thanks guyz... mel... :spin:
